I have been a chicken owner for several years now with a flock of anywhere from 20-50 birds. Every year a few birds die for no apparent reason. However I have had 4 birds die recently within about six weeks. 2 were just found dead in the coop and 2 had been staying away from the flock so I caught them and within a day they were dead. Has anybody got any answers? I’m wondering if this is Mereks or coccidosis?? Not sure if the spelling is correct.
